London - Luton Airport Service

Will Luton’s New Express Rail Service Make The Airport More Attractive?

London Luton Airport is set to get a brand new express railway link to the heart of the city. Opening next year, the service will see a modern fleet of trains deployed on a direct and swift connection with London St Pancras station, shaving minutes off the connection time and reducing associated booking hassles. Simple Flying asks if this will make the airport more attractive to airlines and air passengers as a result.

The new express railway service promises to get passengers from Luton Airport to London St Pancras station in under half an hour. The existing fleet of intercity trains will be replaced with 165 brand new bi-mode carriages in 33 trains, running every half an hour along the line between Bedford and St Pancras.
